Sunday, Jan. 6 – First Sunday Poetry Circle, “Kindness Spoken Here.” Please join poetry lovers (and skeptics!) for the theme of “Giving Birth.” We’ll explore a poem by someone we’ve never heard of (“With Child” by Genevieve Taggard) and another by a poet we’re all familiar with (“Morning Song” by Sylvia Plath). Bring a poem to share or just come to be startled. 9:30 before Worship, 3rd Floor Library. Contact Ron Weisberg with questions.
